Mumbai: The “Priyadarshini” taxi service is a revolutionary move to help women be economically independent. It was developed by Stree Shakti Kendra an NGO for woman welfare. Stree Shakti Kendra arranges low interest loans so that applicant female drivers can buy their car. We feature a divorced mum who struggles with raising her kid and must face prejudice.
Hanoi: Our driver, a quick mouth woman, has been a “xe om” (motorbike taxi) for 10 years and was actually the first lady in her area in that occupation. Her husband is also a “xe om”. She has 2 children with one 10 years old daughter with Down Syndrome. To make ends meet, our lady also dabbles in property introduction.
